Buck Creek Players will be presenting the play “The Rainmaker” it opens Friday, August 3rd and runs for two weekends.
Audition dates are April 2nd and 3rd at 7PM. Buck Creek is located at 11150 Southeastern Avenue.
Set in a drought-ridden rural town in the West in Depression-era America, the play tells the story of a pivotal hot summer day in the life of spinsterish Lizzie Curry. Lizzie keeps house for her father and two brothers on the family cattle ranch. She has just returned from a trip to visit pseudo-cousins (all male), which was undertaken with the failed expectation that she would find a husband. As their farm languishes under the devastating drought, Lizzie’s family worries about her marriage prospects more than about their dying cattle. A charming confidence trickster named Starbuck arrives and promises to bring rain in exchange for $100. His arrival sets off a series of events that enable Lizzie to see herself in a new light.
Producer Bobbi Griffis
Director Tim Spradlin
